Isaiah’s longest working career was with Westvaco Corporation, which afforded him memorable opportunities for travel both here and abroad.
He loved hunting with his buddy Graham Johnson and others, as well as fishing with friends and his daughter.
He leaves to cherish his memories, a devoted wife of 44 years, Bercenia Gibson Smith, one son, Kevin Isaiah Smith, and one daughter, Lisa Young and her husband Michael. He absolutely adored his three granddaughters, Nia, Nayana and Kenedy and goddaughter Jessica Gibson. He has four sisters, Mocile Trotter, Nannie Parham (Arnold), Susan Sanders (Clarence), and Vivian Thomas (Alan) and is predeceased by one brother, Freddie Smith. Isaiah loved and greatly appreciated the love and support he received from his mother-in-law, Vera R. Gibson and three brothers-in-law, Lyndon Gibson (Ardetta), Reginald Gibson (Freda), Douglas Gibson (Clarice) and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins, including his special friend Barbara Moore.
